Houston favorites Detria Ward and Wayne DeHart head the cast of Charles Smith's Knock Me a Kiss, now onstage at the Ensemble Theatre. The action is set in Harlem in the 1920s. Yolanda DuBois, the daughter of African American activist and author W.E.B. DuBois, is torn between two men. One is a rather reckless musician that she truly loves, the other a respected poet chosen by her father. When she makes what seems to be the safe choice, she sets herself up for a shocking disappointment. Though it's a family drama that explores relatively serious issues, Knock Me a Kiss is infused with humor. Chuck Smith directs. (Not to be confused with long-time friend Knock Me playwright Charles Smith.)
